If you’re struggling with the modern, urban, hectic lifestyle, craving something else and really not sure where to start, this could well be the perfect book for you. It’s accessible, very straightforward and opens a door to a totally different way of thinking about life. Philosophically speaking, there’s some great stuff going on here in a way that is easy to absorb and apply to your own experiences.
Urban Druidry represents an OBOD (Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids) perspective of what Druidry is and how it works. Consequently there are some statements – like the idea that you need ‘2 Druid-grade Druids to start a Grove’ that don’t hold true outside of OBOD. I say this with some confidence, being both heavily involved with OBOD myself, and having plenty of experience of other kinds of Druidry, too. There is far more diversity in Druidry than this book suggests, but so long as you know that, it’s a really helpful place to start and has a great deal to offer someone in the early stages of exploring modern Druidry.
